The Indian state of Rajasthan is a beautiful fusion of old and new; the ancient and the modern. Historically Rajasthan is one of India's richest regions littered with magnificent forts and palaces that were once home, and in many cases still are, to royal princes. Some of these are now hotels where we will stay during this amazing photography workshop. India has so many wonderous sights and magical places it would be a crime to just focus just on horses, so we are giving you the best of the best!

Mixed thoughout the workshop, we will explore the legendary land of the Marwari horse and this exoctic horse breed, only found in India. Their strong spirit andpersevering character will capture your heart and take your breathe away. Many people believe Marwari horses are descendents from the gods.  An equine breed of incredible beauty and grace, that was strong enough to hold its own against the fiercest of attacks and to survive the harsh unforgiving conditions of its land. Yet it was endowed with a grace that can only be compared to poetry in motion. Its courage and loyalty have been immortalized and along with its legendary masters, ithas come to be worshipped by the people of India.  As a group we will travel around India to photograph the Marwari horse in spectacular places; beautiful palaces and traditional architecture, mysterious Banyan trees, in water and varied desert landscapes, with and without traditional jewelry. 

We will have two days safari into Ranthambore National park- the most renowned national park in northern India. We will also visit a Leopard sanctuary, famous forts and palaces, shop traditional spice and textile markets all while learning to see and capture natural light in unimaginable ways to give your images depth and emotion.
